I am using PAF 5.2, and I am trying to restore some old PAF backup files from 1993 that are stored on a 3.5" diskette. They are named "name2", "name2.bak", "marr2", "marr2.bak", etc. When I use the Restore function and try to restore the flies from the diskette, I get a message saying "insert backup disk 2". I don't have a "backup disk 2"!! My question: does the "backup disk 2" contain common files that I can acquire from someone else? Unfortunately I no longer have the older version of PAF that I sued when I created the backup files. Can anyone tell me how I can restore these files into PAF 5.2? Thanks for reading my question.
